Today we are celebrating the excellent achievements of our Year 11 pupils as they receive their GCSE and Vocational qualification results.
As the first cohort of pupils at The Charter School East Dulwich to sit full national examinations, today’s results are testament to the hard work of the pupils, their families and staff who, as a community, have helped to build a learning environment and subject expertise that has supported our pupils to excel. The results are outstanding, and we are extremely pleased for Year 11 who can now progress to their chosen next steps of education with pride.

Executive Headteacher, Christian Hicks today said:
“We are extremely proud of the achievements of every one of our Year 11 students. Their hard work and commitment to excellence in their education despite the challenges of the last two years has led to these fantastic results. We also want to pay tribute to the commitment and expertise of their teachers and the care and dedication of their parents in supporting our young people to achieve such amazing success throughout the difficulties of the past two years.”
Head of School, Alison Harbottle commented:
“I am so proud of our students. Their motivation and resilience over the last year has impressed me throughout, and now they get to see the benefits for their future. I would like to thank all our teachers and support staff across the school, for their commitment to the learning and wellbeing of our students, and to our parents, carers and wider community.
I know that this has been an uncertain time in education, especially as part of a new school, and I thank you for your dedication to your children and trust in the school. I wish every one of our Year 11 pupils the very best for their future, whether it is with us in Sixth form or further afield. Our students are more than their grades; they are exceptional, wonderful young people who will live out their dreams, and I am so pleased that these qualifications will help take them one-step closer to those dreams.”
